I finished my first project for June. I just love this yarn and can't wait to wear the socks. As soon as I finished this pair, I started another. It will probably be my second finish. I'm doing 2 at a time and going like crazy. I have always knit in spurts and I seem to be in the knitting zone.
I find knitting a great stress reliever. Our lives have been very stressful lately. DH was in New Jersey all last week. His 86 year old mother had emergency surgery to repair damage caused by a colonoscopy that perforated her colon. She was fine right after she came out of the anesthesia, but within a day her lungs filled with fluid and she had to be put on a ventilator.
When they took her off she was breathing on her own, but then her lungs collapsed. She went downhill rapidly from there and died early Tuesday morning.
Poor DH was exhausted when he got home. He had been up nights at the hospital and picking up catch as catch can meals. Not terribly nutritious. The first thing he did when he got home was to have a big salad for dinner. After his pneumonia earlier this year the Dr. told him to he had to get his blood pressure and cholesterol down. He told him he should read the book Eat to Live and drastically change his diet. He immediately lost 30 pounds, dropped his blood pressure and his cholesterol levels are way down. He had been doing so well that he really noticed the difference when he wasn't eating right. We are both desperately in need of some down time. We were hoping to go for a motorcycle ride this weekend, but now it looks like rain all weekend. Bummer. We'll have to come up with something else fun.
